Pirelli right to tweak tyres for Barcelona - Vettel

Lewis Hamilton wins the 2018 Spanish GP F1 gossip: Hamilton, Vettel, Sirotkin, Alonso, Grosjean

Sebastian Vettel's poor form continued at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday. But you know what, most of the time, the Spanish GP is.

Hamilton started the season with pole position in Melbourne but Ferrari won the first two races. The drivers and teams know the track too well, and the layout of the track with those long-radius medium- and high-speed corners means that it's hard to follow another vehicle. "But as a team it's all a good race", he said.

He said "Before I was like, "Maybe I'm just insane and everyone has got quicker and I've got slower". After a weekend like the last one, yes". The British driver got a surprise call up to test the auto this week, making a change from his usual Aston Martin GT vehicle that he races in the Blancpain GT Series.

The 2019 F1 aero regulations are meant to help cars follow each other.

Hamilton, 33, briefly spoke about his future after the race, explaining: "we do talk about it and we are not really far away from finishing things so it will happen hopefully in the near future".

"But Mercedes have looked strong".

"Our mistake was that we could not get the wear out of them that our rivals did, and it's up to us to react and work on it", Vettel added.

"We're absolutely delighted with the way the weekend has gone here in Barcelona", beamed Shovlin.

Scientists 'Astounded' by Mysterious Rise in Banned Chemical
The researchers found that emissions of CFC-11 were between 2014 and 2016 up by a quarter from the average between 2002 and 2012. The ozone layer, a fragile shield of gas, protects animal and plant life on Earth from powerful UV rays.

The tyres created all sorts of headaches for the teams.

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are not done just yet. "Honestly before the race we expected one stop was not going to be possible - at least to do the race quickly with one stop".

Pressure had been building on the Silver Arrows following a tricky start to the season - a miscalculation by the team cost Hamilton dear in Australia and he had to settle for third and fourth-place finishes in Bahrain and China respectively.

Asked by Autosport whether he felt vindicated by the outcome of Vettel's back-to-back testing of the tyres, Pirelli Formula 1 chief Mario Isola said: "Absolutely". That stint alone should make Ferrari and Vettel a bit anxious when looking at how they're going to get back in front in this World Championship battle.

Hamilton has endorsed Bottas for a long-term role at Mercedes and Wolff also admitted he is on par with the four-time F1 drivers' champion this season, but the team will make a decision on the second driver in the summer. "But I have the will to want to get this one and do it right, flawless weekend in, weekend out".

"It was a good day and a relatively interesting test, I'm glad we did it", he said. Norris' vehicle stopped on track in the afternoon causing a red flag, but was soon back out once McLaren discovered a setting issue and rectified the problem. His teammate Daniel Ricciardo, not to be left out of the highlight package, spun behind the virtual safety vehicle. Verstappen finally got his first podium of the season and fulfilled his obvious speed and potential, which is good to see. In a way, while it was a shame for Nico Hulkenberg and Pierre Gasly, it was lucky that there weren't more cars wiped out in that or drivers injured. It's the jewel in F1's crown, and Ferrari versus Mercedes versus Red Bull should be well and truly on.

Just ask Kimi Raikkonen. He finished seventh in 2017 after qualifying in a dismal 14th. And Max and Daniel are hungry for their first Monaco wins.
